Ephesians 6:18—a Scripture written to the Church—is one of my favorite verses on the subject of prayer. EPHESIANS 6:18 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints. Another translation says “all manner of prayer.” Yet another says “all kinds of prayer.” We need all kinds of prayer—not just one kind. The Bible speaks of several kinds of prayer.
One is “the prayer of commitment,” or casting your cares upon the Lord. Our main text on this is First Peter 5:7, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” That’s from the King James Version. My favorite translation of this particular verse is from The Amplified Bible: “Casting the whole of your care—all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all—on Him; for He cares for you affectionately, and cares about you watchfully.”
